While I've been frustrated with the state of my finances lately, it probably doesn't help that over the last couple of months I've kinda bought these guys to join my growing plant family... (The intention being reduce the number of ornaments and display items in favour of plants.)
The #ivy and #peperonia are to go indoors, one in my bedroom, one in my bathroom. Both are considered to be air purifying plants, which is exactly what I was wanting. So is #bamboo , so my new little guy is going on my laderax in my lounge/dining, and being "lucky bamboo" will hopefully bring some luck my way. Lol.
A #guzmania to join my little #bromeliad collection gifted to me by one of my aunts, bringing it to 3.
And a #blackberry plant to join my edibles. .
I’m going bold and bright for #onwednesdaysweplantpink with this beautiful #aechmea bloom. The pink you see are actually bracts (modified leaves around flowers) you can just about see the tiny fading flowers between them. Almost all bromeliads are monocarpic meaning they will either go dormant or slowly die after flowering. Luckily they readily produce offsets so you can keep propagating for years to come! #bromeliad
Did you know: I really dislike carnations & roses, but I truly love lehua flowers, gardenias, red ginger, proteas and now bromeliads! I brought this beauty home today from @wholefoods #bromeliad#floral#flowers
